"The Golem: How He Came into the World,” centers around Judah Loew ben Bezalel, a 16th-century Rabbi who resided in the city of Prague. The film holds an important place in film history, given its status as the earliest film to feature a man-made monster — long before the Frankenstein monster.

"The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" has been hailed by many critics, including Roger Ebert, as one of the first true horror films. Even though it’s over a hundred years old, this movie about the sinister doctor Caligari and his monster Cesare is still unsettling to watch and visually distinct.

"The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is regarded as a seminal work of horror fiction. John Barrymore's portrayal of the titular dual characters is nothing short of disturbing, in fact, per an archived review of the film, many were worried that his performance was so terrifying it would prove unhealthy for expectant mothers.

"The Phantom Carriage," directed by Victor Sjöström, is based on the 1912 novel "Thy Soul Shall Bear Witness!" by Selma Lagerlöf. Given its haunting visuals, and its bizarre non-linear plot, the film has been praised for its level of cinematic influence, and it will still leave you with goosebumps.

Haxan is a bizarre movie, as it switches between fictional narrative bits, and documentary-style segments — both focusing on the "facts" and folklore concerning witchcraft. It also features rampant satanic images and nudity which was risky a hundred years ago and also one of the reasons the movie is often regarded as a stylistic trendsetter.
